What a year. aside from working as a freelance photographer, some of my most memorable moments of growth were during my time spent in bangladesh, launching a kickstarter campaign for my non profit and growing our family (two little babies are on the way). next year will be life changing — balancing motherhood and my career. cheers to #2019 #bestof2018
